Several ingredients in this product help shield skin from the sun but it's the non-nano zinc oxide that takes it to the next level. Adding a thin, opaque layer to the skin, it moisturizes while offering total body coverage.
- Non-nano = particles are large enough that they do not penetrate the skin surface.
- Maximizes the sun blocking factor and won't end up in your blood stream later.
- Hearing a lot of fuss about sunscreen ingredients? Non-nano zinc oxide has been declared safe for humans and coral reefs.
I had my formula officially tested and it earned both a nice broad spectrum SPF rating and water resistance rating. Unfortunately, sunscreens can only be labelled with these terms if they are manufactured in a certified drug manufacturing facility (not what I have). These regulated terms are not on my label but now you know the whole story.
Cover clothing, a wide brimmed hat, UV protecting sunglasses, water and snacks are all wise things to bring on any adventure!
Please use within 12 months of opening.
Ingredients: Coconut Oil, Organic Shea Butter, Non-nano Zinc Oxide Powder, Vermont Beeswax, Organic Essential Oils of Eucalyptus and Rosemary
If it's too late and you already burned yourself, find relief with Super Skin Salve.
"... It went on easily, smelled great, and did not at all leave my skin feeling suffocated or greasy. In fact, I forgot to wash it off and I was perfectly fine. I only use sunscreen on my face and since I spend a lot of time outside, I need some protection but hate the way most sunscreens feel (even the all natural ones). The little tin is really convenient too and works for me since I only need face coverage. I used to play around with making salves and things so am pretty fussy when it comes to products, and think you got the formulation for this just right. I forgot to mention it did a great job of protecting my skin!"
